♡ The People
Thousands of people on 5 continents have attended the ISTA training over the past 10 years and have uncovered core wounding reactive patterns, transforming them into conscious ways of being that enable them to respond from a place of empowered loving presence.
♡ The Retreat
This retreat focuses on clearing the physical, emotional and mental bodies of shame, guilt and fear related to life force energy, sexuality and authenticity. This is done through multiple pathways of healing: guided visualization, emotional release, shamanic initiations, energy tracking and conscious touch are just a few of the practices used to dive deep into the inner realms. The inner masculine and inner feminine archetypes are explored because when they are fully integrated a door opens to a deeper knowing of the Self as whole and complete.
♡ The Event
This event unfolds within a powerful group process based on presence, unconditional love, intimacy and acceptance of what is arising. By the end of this event, you will feel more alive, open, relaxed and present and be more in touch with the effortless flow of life, no matter what it looks like.
♡ The Experience
No prior knowledge of shamanism or sacred sexuality is necessary to attend this retreat. ISTA trainings tend to bring together people with a vast range of experiences and from many pathways. This event is about expansion, while honoring your healthy boundaries. Nudity and intimate touch are a part of this training, however, you are always at choice. It is possible to do this entire training without taking off any clothing or touching another person because at the core – this journey is about your relationship with yourself and life force energy. The facilitators will help you navigate what is authentic for you. Individuals and couples of any sexual preference and identification are welcome to attend.
This is an individual process that happens in a group environment and a level of ability to be self responsible is needed to navigate the spiritual sexual shamanic space. ISTA is a mystery school and approaches trauma from the shamanic perspective of connecting with the body and soul. We recommend that if there is known deep seated trauma, individuals seek one on one sessions and get the ok from their therapist before entering the group process.

♡ More glowing testimonials
The training was profound, deeply impactful, respectful, wise beyond most of our years, held with integrity and accountability, and most importantly with the utmost of care. My Take-aways… An increased sense of freedom from old programming, and a powerful mirror of sensing myself as a Sensual, Sexual, Balanced Sovereign Being! Also, I was looking for a SoulMate to join me, in experiences of ecstasy, and in serving the transformation of our world, the last quarter century of my life; instead I found something much more richer and empowering, and that is my SoulTribe! A Conscious Tribe to Experience Ecstacy, and to be in Transformational Service with! Hallelujah!!!

get ready to be transformed!
Get ready to be transformed! This training is revolutionary, healing, empowering! Like nothing you’ve ever done before! The tools I learned did not only help me to expand my sexuality but also to expand my communication and interpersonal skills in general. These tools are transferable to all types of relationships; from family to work, I feel more confident to be able to express my desires and boundaries in a mature and aware manner. I Highly recommend this experience for adults of all ages!
a journey
This journey has been an amazing experience that really shifted the way I feel about myself. Learning to integrate the male and female part within myself and see everybody else as both parts gives me a new way to approach others. After the training I really feel the way to honour and stand up for myself, while remaining on touch with physical and emotional body and the sweetness within it. what a journey, what a change, I don’t even want to go back to the way before Thanks for providing this beautiful journey with its deep insights and enormous skills.
no stories
There are no stories I can tell to describe this journey. Imagine you are an ocean with deep waters full of terrifying creatures. You close your eyes and jump in all the way to the bottom. As you come up through the ocean you encounter all these scary things and realize that they aren’t what you thought they were. You hold your breath and trust you will make it through. When you emerge from the depths you realize a beautiful, powerful creature awaits you. And that creature is you.
I am very grateful for all the different processes I went through this week, each one was profoundly transformative, the team provided me the loving safe space to let go of some very old and deep wounds.
ISTA training is of an essential nature. It takes the journey of a human experience into the perspective of healthy empowered being, it offers tools that allow you to heal your body and emotions and therefore enables participants to claim their birth right to truly live life.
an opportunity
ISTA offered me an opportunity and a space to shake up free up and escape into a reality of truth and honesty. It’s a journey I took with abundance of teachers that showed me the way into myself, the real me, my real body, my true pleasure. It made me find ways to beat the fears and illusions awake and realise they are there, it it poured for me a pavement to walk steady on, towards the encounter with myself. ISTA took me with many other and put us in a container, shook that container up again and again, and let us find what was shed, and what was left in each and every one of us. I am now stepping, aware, present and brave towards the most important change that will ever happen to me.
a call in the heart
If you feel a call in your heart to attend this training then go for it… yes, your mind will come up with all kinds of struggles and fears.. but still trust your heart and go for it. It is not just another seminar that fills you with information, but it will touch you deeply within your very soul and then the healing takes place.. a healing from the source, such a sacred place… take the chance and do it for yourself .. for your life!
boundless lessons
There are boundless lessons to take with me from this experience, but perhaps the most precious for me in this moment was to witness the creation of Sacred Space; space where all is held sacred and safe; space without judgement; space made from love. I truly feel that I can carry this with me and recreate it anywhere I want or need. Thank you!
prep school
ISTA provides the training we all needed in prep school. It’s the fast track process to healing and awakening! I’m so blessed to have had come across this family. I can never express with words my gratitude and love for my brothers and sisters from ISTA. Namaste!
boundless lessons
The training has been the most powerful and transformative experience I had in my life. It really kicked up my transition towards a more peaceful and aligned life. I am really grateful that I had the courage to be fully immersed in this experience.
